Forecast: Sunshine Won't Settle

By Jason Samenow

Savor the next couple days of mostly sunny weather. Starting Wednesday -- we should cloud over for several straight days with wet weather arriving Thursday and Friday. By next weekend the sun may unveil itself again, but with cooler air blasting in simultaneously.

Mostly sunny. 54-58. We'll have ample sunshine with high pressure centered over the region. Temperatures from 35-40 when you get up and head out will rise steadily towards the mid-to-upper 50s in the afternoon. That's right about where they should be this time of the year. Winds will be light.

Clear and quite cold overnight, with lows dropping into the mid 30s downtown with some upper 20s in the colder suburbs. Calm winds.

Confidence: High

TOMORROW (TUESDAY)

Mostly sunny. 54-58. High pressure will hold tight for one more day, bringing another sunny day. After a frosty start, temperatures will likely recover well into the 50s.

Partly cloudy skies overnight, and not as cold. Lows will drop to near 40 downtown with mid 30s in the colder suburbs.

A LOOK AHEAD

A storm system will approach the region from the west Wednesday, increasing cloud cover and perhaps causing some patchy light rain to develop during the evening (20% chance). Highs should range from 55-60. Confidence: Medium

Thursday and Friday will likely both be cloudy, with a 50% chance of rain showers. It won't rain this entire time, but it likely will remain overcast and dreary, with highs near 55 Thursday warming to the low 60s Friday (overnight lows from 45-50). Confidence: Medium

The area of low pressure responsible for the clouds and rain late in the work week should drag a cold front through the area Saturday morning, helping to clear us out. Much like this past weekend, it will probably take about a day for the cold air to work its way in, so Saturday may still have high temperatures reach 60, with breezy conditions. Sunday likely becomes blustery and cold, with highs only near 50. Confidence: Medium
